Supposedly the TOS Enterprise took in "space matter" and "space energy" (dark energy???), the Official TMP Blueprints specified such intakes for the refit Enterprise.

Anymore, I've decided that the original Enterprise used something even more exotic than the types of matter-antimatter described in TNG and beyond. Particularly in light of how energetic the explosion was in "Obsession".

That they called it simply "antimatter" I attribute to a colloquialism, similar to how pilots today call their jet fuel "gas".
